MELISSA HARMON — Special to GoGamecocks

South Carolina freshman defensive back Martay Mattox has decided to leave the program, a school official confirmed Tuesday.

Mattox, a native of Athens, Ga., enrolled at South Carolina last January and appeared to be making progress up the depth chart during spring practice last season. However, he never cracked the rotation and redshirted in his first season with the Gamecocks despite a number of injuries in the secondary.

Mattox could not be reached for comment.
